Taft senior post Adolphus Washington
·         Taft 71 Aiken 43: The senior trio of Orlando Berry, Adolphus Washington, and Jalean Lowe dominated the game offensively while Taft gave a complete team defensive effort to rout a Falcons team that simply couldn’t handle the pressure of Taft. Berry set the tempo early recording 8 total steals and scoring 10 of his 18 points in the first quarter. Washington was his traditional workhorse self as he put up 20 points and 19 rebounds in a game which he was simply unguardable. Lowe attacked the rim efficiently tonight and added on 17 points. The Taft defense was sparked early by senior starters Fred Cannaday and Jermaine Freeman as they raced out to a 14 point first quarter lead and never looked back for a second, proving that Taft is the undeniable Division II powerhouse in Cincinnati. Taft’s defense held Aiken stars Willie Moore and Ausin Grimes to 5 points a piece as the Falcons were led in scoring by sophomore Correy Cavins with 14 and senior forward Paul Woodson with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
